20 Days.....

The Norwegian Bliss

This is our bucket list cruise, doing it in memory of my mom.
Both children, a niece and the errant spouse and I.
Other than the girl child, none of us have ever been on a cruise.
I have trouble getting to Catalina. 
Mid Ship, Mini Suite. 
Watching Glacier Bay from our balcony sipping tea.
Gold Panning.
Seeing the Yukon.
Lumberjacks and Crab Fests. 
Good food, good drinks, good laughs, and great memories to be made.

Twilight Zone "He's Alive".

This morning I watched an episode of the Twilight Zone, starring Dennis Hopper. It was called " He's Alive". It was scarily relevant to what happened this weekend. Watch it if you want. I thought it was interesting that it was screened today.
This is the closing narration from Rod Serling and it does ring true:

Where will he go next, this phantom from another time, this resurrected ghost of a previous nightmare – ChicagoLos AngelesMiamiFloridaVincennes, IndianaSyracuse, New York? Anyplace, everyplace, where there's hate, where there's prejudice, where there's bigotry. He's alive. He's alive so long as these evils exist. Remember that when he comes to your town. Remember it when you hear his voice speaking out through others. Remember it when you hear a name called, a minority attacked, any blind, unreasoning assault on a people or any human being. He's alive because through these things we keep him alive.

Outside my window71º, partly cloudy and a slight breeze

I am thinking The landlord’s passive neglect is going to bite

I am thankful for lots of things

From the learning rooms …  it takes a lot of work to clean up flooded rooms.

I can't believe . . . I actually made it to Wisconsin and did what I needed to do

From the kitchen . . . hash for dinner

I am wearing   blue Henley tee shirt and Bermuda shorts

I am creating…  packing lists for September

I am going . .  . to pick up meds not covered by my insurance…grrrrr

I am reading …  “The Affair of the Poisons” about the court of Louis XIV

I am hoping to start to get things back to normal around the house

I am hearing all sorts of things

Around the house 1 dog, 1 cat, 1 son, landlord and friend

One of my favorite thingsdriving back roads

A few plans for the rest of the week
1.  More bags to goodwill and salvation army
2.  Sort things out
3.  Meditate

I am thankful for our new CA King bed

Around the house 1 dog, 1 cat, 1 son

One of my favorite thingsWatching jets take off

A few plans for the rest of the week
